This is a bit of a long shot, but I've finally unpacked my UK Dreamcast, with the hope of hooking it up to my Vizio L37 LCD. I know it's a few years old, but I only game once in a while and V-Rally is still great fun

The problem I have is not related to the voltage (I have a transformer) but I assume it's a TV standards issue - I can see a picture, but it's b+w and it flickers and scrolls as if the tracking was out on a vcr. However, I would have expected these issues with a CRT - not an LCD. Is there something I can tweak on the set up (attached just through a composite video cable at the moment - might be able to hook together component) or do I need to get a PAL to NTSC convertor box?

All thoughts gratefully received.

Sounds like your tv doesn't like PAL games.

If that's the case, your cheapest bet is to buy a US Sega Dreamcast and Test Drive V-Rally (The US name for the game).
